Starting on startup

i think that they should add a feature that allows users to start ranmeter upon startup/login and fix the problem of some apps not opening when you click on them

Yep, but this is on the installer window. Maybe a similar checkbox would be good to exist on the Manage Rainmeter dialog, too (for example on the Settings tab?).

No, we would rather not try to write to protected areas like Start Menu\Programs\Startup except during the installation process, when we ask for and are given explicit permission.

Well, from my point of view this is ok. Was just an idea.
My Rainmeter is and was always set to start on startup (and in plus I restart my system extremely rarely).

It really only takes seconds to re-install the latest Rainmeter and ensure that checkbox is checked. Nothing else will be changed.

Wanted to check if Rainmeter is being updated automatically? Just in case...

No. Rainmeter is never automatically updated. If there is a new "release" version available, and you do not disable version check in settings, it will inform you that a new version is available, but will only offer to take you to the main site to download it if you wish.

We do strongly encourage all users to stay current with at least the latest "release" version, and recommend that you stay current with the latest "beta" version, although that takes a bit more commitment, as no notification of beta versions is done. It's up to you, but do stay current with the latest "release" at a minimum.
